Introduction to waterproof socket
Waterproof socket is not only a plug with waterproof performance, but also a safe and reliable connection of electricity, signal, etc. For example: LED street lamp, LED driving power supply, LED display screen, lighthouse, cruise ship, industrial equipment, communication equipment, detection equipment, commercial square, road, villa exterior wall, garden, park, etc., all need to use waterproof socket.
There are many brands and types of waterproof socket in the market, including the traditional waterproof socket used in home life, such as triangle plug, which can be called socket, but generally it is not waterproof. Then how to judge the waterproof socket? The waterproof measurement is IP. The highest level of waterproof is IP68. At present, there are many domestic manufacturers of waterproof plug, but there are few manufacturers of industrial and domestic sockets, so it is not convenient to use the general household appliance plug.
Domestic outdoor waterproof socket, 220v10a three plug and two plug can be used in the non protective state to meet the needs of domestic use. (the protection level IP66 can meet the needs of the family. IP66 is a strong water spray in all directions, and it does not enter the water after soaking in 1 meter of water for 1 hour). It should be noted that the outdoor socket is generally made of PC, so anti-aging should be considered.
Principle of waterproof socket
Waterproof socket is to add a waterproof box with a cover outside the general embedded wall socket. The place where the box contacts the wall has a rubber mat, so it can be waterproof; some waterproof sockets are plastic rain proof sheath, with the middle cutting hole facing down and supporting special cutting head. There are three-phase four wire, three-phase five wire supporting cuttings, cuttings.
Installation of waterproof socket
First remove the socket, then put the waterproof cover behind the socket, and then connect and fix the wire to the interface of the socket according to the polarity (the live wire is connected to the L interface, the zero wire is connected to the N interface, and the ground wire is connected to the e interface). The fastening screw must be tightened, and it is better to put the fixing screw of the socket on the wall.
Installation of waterproof socket in toilet
The toilet is the most humid place in the home, and the socket is easy to splash water, so the selection and installation of the socket in the toilet must pay special attention to:

3. When purchasing a socket, check whether the clip of the socket is tight enough, the insertion force should be sufficient, and the clip of the socket should have toughness. Nowadays, the structure of the socket clip adopts the strong extrusion method, which greatly increases the bite force between the plug and the clip, avoids the phenomenon of heating during long-term use, at the same time, the strong extrusion makes the plug not easy to fall, and effectively reduces the phenomenon of power failure caused by human factors.
4. In the use process, make sure that the hand is dry, do not bring water to use the switch and socket.
